Why are village people more happy, healthy, prosperous and enjoy longevity compared to city people?

Village people are happy mainly because most of them do not follow Facebook to constantly compare their lives with those of their friends living abroad or earning a few bucks more.

They are healthy because they eat natural and organic food instead of junk food, work their asses off in fields instead of sitting all day in an air conditioned cubicle, move from place to place by walk and not by swanky bikes or cars, and play physical games and not video games.

They are prosperous because they spend well within their means and mostly on essentials, and do not have credit cards to swipe and splurge money on unwanted gadgets just to look cool.

A Success story of Village Voluntary Tourism at Organic Rose home Stay

My name is Jeevan Lal Verma, I was born in the village of Sunargaon, which is in the Kanda, Bageshwar District of the Kumoan region in Uttarakhand, North India. My family business was in jewellery making, we had a Goldsmiths called Sunar, so our village is called Sunargaon. I studied in Inter college Kanda , ITI Training Almora and National Apprenticeship at Scooters India limited Lucknow after I had finished my studying and visiting life in the city I decided to do social work within my village. I felt called to social work because I had a helping nature, I had always suffered from a lack of money, but my soul told me to serve the local community. I made it my hobby to connect to the whole of the world, so I participated in many training projects, workshops, visits and conferences by the youth leadership and as a social activist.

It was June 1988 when I participated in a workshop where I met some foreign visitors. One was a representative from a Volunteer sending organization; he was looking for a host family. The idea was to host overseas volunteers and help them to engage with work camps in rural development, environmental protection, disaster relief and other activities. I was happy to host international volunteers and accepted the offer.

In August 1988, I hosted eight international volunteers (5 female & 3 male) from different nations. They participated in 15 days home stay, cultural exchange and social & rural development work camps. That was my first experience and it was very successful. My family and the whole community gave the visitors a warm welcome. The community and youth of Kanda participated and my family was very cooperative with hosting the international volunteers, who adjusted very well to our family life. I felt good because the visiting group were very flexible, civilized and had a good sense of humor. It was a valuable exchange because I learnt some skills and increased my knowledge from them.

As this first experience was such a success more volunteers were sent from the organization. All the visitors had tourist visas and when they came to Sunargoan they appreciated the beauty of their natural surroundings as well as sampling unique Kumoan organic local dishes and exchanging cultural activities. There was also the opportunity to engage in local religious (Hindu) Ceremonies and Festivals. In addition there was practical work such as rural development projects, building construction and craft activities which hugely increased the local villages social welfare and rural development.

Some of the volunteers suggested that it would be a better idea to invite future volunteers directly so that I could earn money for the community, which previously would have gone to the volunteer organization. Visitors were then able to connect to me directly from places such as the UK, Holland and the USA and I hosted some volunteers every year. Due to lack of marketing skills and adequate communication equipment sometime the number of visitors were few. However with patience and with new communication equipment I was able to connect to non profit volunteer organizations. I placed an entry detailing this opportunity in an International directory publication. This resulted in more visitors arriving in Sunargoan. At the start of 2000 some of the volunteers published their good experiences in an international magazine.

People who volunteer regularly have been known to live longer and happier, establish healthy relationships and feel more fulfilled. But that’s not all.

social volunteering work

From: Merline Mary

In this life of hustle and bustle, it has become difficult to free one’s self for volunteer work. While everyone is busy in his own life, it is sometimes difficult to convince people to contribute to social causes. Most people end up on giving money as their form of help and avoid to give time as a volunteer. Money cannot suffice without manpower. So I have decided to engage myself in social volunteering work so that I can contribute to the world from my part.
This mail is to inquire
